(en) Organización Anarquista de Córdoba: IT IS NOT THE FIRE, IT IS THE CAPITALISM (ca) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 7 Oct 2020 08:17:41 +0300

Once again the native forest fires advance in Cordoba as elsewhere in the country and Latin America. In the case of this province, the situation repeats itself year after year and is getting worse. Wilful fires are one of the many visible consequences of an entire structural array of exploitation of the territories and bodies. ---- The fearsome silence and inaction of the National and Provincial governments reveal their fabric of complicity and their negotiated. Shields in wind and drought climate factors are not guaranteeing the resources to appease flames, which leaves the sad balance of two people dead by voluntarily competing to fight fire. Much less talk about root solutions, because environmental disaster is state policy.
Cordoba is one of the most dismounted areas of Latin America in the last fifty years, with only 3 % of the native forest left. Real estate negotiated, agribusiness, mining and negotiated elite sports in complicity with the interests of the Schiaretti government are directly responsible for dismantling. Setting fire to saws, expanding the existing environmental disaster, is one of the ways to establish land use change for the benefit of their economic interests.
The national state under the Kirchnerist government is responsible to the same extent. The deepening of the extractivist model as a productive matrix for the ´´ serious capitalism ´´ they promote has led us to the irreversible situation we go through. The interests of government, agribusiness, the megaminery are the same, the accumulation through dispossession, looting and exploitation.
It is not natural disasters, it is a systematic ecocide perpetrated by capitalist development. The governments of the whole Latin American region in conjunction with local and transnational capitals are involved. They are responsible for the historical deepening of an extractivist structural model, enhanced by coordinating the IIRSA plan. This extractivist matrix deepens the historic looting by which a few above won't stop accumulating at the expense of exploiting the bottom, our territories and nature.
There is no ecological coexistence without destruction of the environment and the possible nature under the capitalist mode of production. As long as the state and the concentrated sectors of the economy sustain their domination apparatus, it will not be possible to reverse the environmental disaster. It is urgent that the organized people take into their hands to resist the impunity of the negotiated of the above and so to forge from below the self-management of the economy, work and life, without exploiting our bodies or of the the nature.
